"A fascinating true-life documentary on triplets separated at birth and raised by three different families. The kicker, none of them knew about it. There is a plethora of real content, spun together creating a suspenseful story. Your jaw will drop. Mrs. Doubtfire (Obligated; I’m taking on the management of Pierce Brosnan's Malibu home). Mrs. Doubtfire fits all my checklists for a go-to movie, the first being: a coming-of-age theme. I love storytelling with a focus on an adolescents's mental, emotional, and personal character growth. Pair that with family dynamics, humor and love; you have me hooked for 1.5 hours. "
"Though not a 2022 series, I watched this in the early days of the pandemic and felt like it was worth the mention. It’s about a father (a Louisiana Pharmacist) that loses his son to opioid addiction. It really opened my eyes to the opioid crisis. Though a heartbreaking story, it is inspiring the determination one man has to expose the corruption in the industry and help prevent future tragedies all while grieving the loss of his son. "
"There are a lot of great movies everyone knows about even if they haven't seen them. The Lives of Others is a little more under the radar (the movie's in German) -- a slow burn thriller with a kind of deep and unflinching ethical core. I think it's a masterpiece, and I say this as a viewer who doesn't tilt to its ideology.'
